breaking news. a democratic source tells jessica yellin at the white house there is apparently a fiscal cliff deal that is in the works right now. we're also told that the vice president, joe biden, is heading to capitol hill. ali, this could be a dramatic moment that we're watching right now. >> we were told joe biden would only go over when it looked like there was a deal. not only to shore up support for the deal in general with the republicans with whom he has a good relationship, but with democrats, we have heard all day today there have been some democrats dissatisfied by how far they have had to go to get that deal. if you want to read tea leaves, it looks better than it looked a couple hours ago. >> it looks like biden is going to be at this meeting with the democratic caucus. the democratic senators, that's supposed to start in 15 minute. he'll brief them on what's going on. he has some problems, though, with some of the more liberal democrats who apparently aren't very happy with all of the details. let's go up to the white house. jessica yellin, our chief white house correspo
. okay. option three. that's the red box. that's one where america goes over the fiscal cliff. jessica yellin is cnn's chief white house correspondent. peer into the crystal ball for us, jessica. which of these scenarios is most likely? >> well, ali, i think that after yesterday it's slightly more likely that there will be some sort of agreement. that doesn't mean that there are a whole bunch of optimists running around d.c. saying it's going to get resolved. but what you describe sod well as a moment of spiritual clarity yesterday really did lead some to think that senators reid and mcconnell have done this before. they are two experts at getting together and crafting something that resolves things at the 11th hour. and if any two men with can do it, it is these two men. right now their staffs are working on negotiating that agreement. and so there's some hope that that could get done. i'd say more today than there was when we woke up yesterday morning, ali. >> all right, jessica. you called it jujitsu yesterday. >> yes. >> this is a tough position. the president has taken a tough lin
tax relief for the middle class, for more than 98% of american taxpayers, more than 97% -- >> jessica yellin and dana bash working their sources to stay ahead. dana, when do we expect a vote to take place, within this hour? >> we do now. it's been moved up a little bit according to the republicans who run the show here. they say they do expect it probably within the next half hour to 45 minutes. perhaps it means that members are as tired as everybody else is, that they want to fin, the debate and go back. but one thing that i just mentioned before and i think it's worth saying again and that is the procedural vote that took place to get to us this point was very, very big, a big bipartisan vote, 408 members voted for it and that means almost all of the democrats voted for it. it is significant in that this is the kind of procedural vote that is almost always pretty partisan and it really does signal as you're hearing from the democratic leader, nancy pelosi on the floor, that it is going to be a bipartisan vote. >> what accounts for that? earlier in the day there was all sorts of diss

. and that is where the contention is. i want to bring in jessica yellin, our chief white house correspondent. jessica, we talked about chain cpi, this cake up a week ago and the president signaled he might think it's fair. in fact he said it again this morning on one of the sunday shows. that he might be okay with chained cpi. why has this become a point of contention over which the talks may be breaking down? >> because that was in the context of a much larger deal, ali, in which they were making much broader concessions, where democrats were getting more of what they wanted. republicans were conceding other points. that was in the context of a big deal with speaker boehner. now we're talking about the mini deal. the patch to get us through the new year. so democrats argue that this doesn't even have the votes to pass the house and the senate as dana says, it's a quote poison pill in the eyes of the democrats. we can continue to discuss that. i just want to bring awe little bit of news, if i may. while this all is as you put it, i think in very clearly, quote, disgusting and everything is moving ver
. chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, and senior congressional correspondent, dana bash. jessica, first, to you, the president's back in washington, wheels down. he left his christmas vacation early. but was this just a bit of showmanship, or has he been working on something specific? >> reporter: hey, john. well, today has been a bit of a quiet day here at the white house. publicly, the president has been scarce, no sign of him. behind closed doors, i'm told a few meetings internally, but mostly, relatively quiet. i expect we will see more from the president, perhaps we could even see him publicly tomorrow. perhaps he could even meet with or talk to some of the congressional leaders. the president's role in all of this, he can get each of the leaders to come closer on what the white house believes is already, pretty clearly, the framework for a final deal, and he can also go out and lobby the american people to pressure congress to get something done. again, the democrats are insistent that they have been clear on the outlines of what a deal would look like, to raise ta
cliff has been averted. dana, excellent reporting. let's go to jessica yellin, who also has been standing by and watching this very carefully. i think because of what an embarrassing situation this has been, the president, jessica, has to be very careful as to how he plays this now. does he come out and make a speech? does he claim a victory? >> in fact, he will come out tonight, ali. the president will come out here in the press briefing room. we moved in here a little while ago suspecting that this might happen. in fact, the guys are coming out to put the presidential seal on the podium. he will speak at 11:20 eastern time. that's ten minutes from now. and deliver a statement, i'm told, which when they give the guidance that way, it means don't expect him to answer your question when is you shout them at him but can you try. i just want to remind you that he first sat down with congressional negotiators on november 16th, just after he was reelected to first begin discussions to get a deal on avoiding the fiscal cliff and he began those discussions to have a grand bargain then.

in with the new year. cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is getting new details. jess can ka, what are you hearing about that meeting? >> reporter: candy, the president is going to explain or reiterate the position he took on friday, that he would like a plan that extends tax rates for people who make $250,000 and below but raises them for those who make more than that. that it extends unemployment benefits for americans. and if the president, i'm told will say if he does not get an agreement to that plan, he will ask the other leaders what they can agree to, what what they would like instead. if they cannot come up with a proposal that will pass the house and the senate, will ask for a vote on his measure. but that meeting, candy, is still going on. congre congressional leaders arrived at the white house for a last-ditch meeting just days before a new year's deadline. back on the hill, pressure to break the stalemate. >> we've got to demonstrate we have some capacity left to make decisions in washington on these very significant issues for the country. >> if we don't have a
. that is, we understand, still on the table. that's for households. jessica yellen at the white house is reporting that the number for individuals right now is $400,000, meaning tax cuts for everybody up to those levels, $400,000 for an individual, $450,000 for a household would stay in place. for everybody else, the tax rates would expire. that's on the table we understand now, but things are changing so fast who knows if it is where the negotiations are really up happening. that's just one example. another thing is the estate tax, which is a very big deal, to a lot of people in this country, not just, you know, people who you normally think of as wealthy but farmers with big estates want to keep the tax threshold at a lower level, and we're told that democrats are seriously considering it and are open to that in a big way in the negotiations. >> we know the talks are continuing and both sides are weighing in on this. do we think the president in any way is also involved in this, or we're not quite at that level? >> reporter: it's hard to imagine he's not. it really is. so much is ri

. jessica yellin has the >> reporter: in washington, there is still hope a deal can be cut in time to avert the fiscal cliff. on saturday the president was at work here at the white house, but all eyes were up on the senate where negotiators were trading deal points and revenue figures, to try to reach an agreement all sides can stomach. the base line for the president - any bipartisan bill would have to extend unemployment insurance benefits that would affect some two million americans. and it would have to increase taxes on the highest income earners. but negotiators could still work out exactly where those tax increases would hit and whether they would halt an increase in the estate tax. now in case that deal breaks down, the president has asked democratic leader harry reid to prepare a separate bill to put on the senate floor. that bill would increase taxes for households that earn 250- thousand dollars or more. now that's a democratic proposal, and you can expect republicans would block it. so rather than thinking of that as a stop-gap measure, think of it as a political move to try to

will likely shrink in 2013. jessica doyle with more on that part of the story. >> reporter: whether or not you think congress can pull off some sort of fiscal cliff compromise before major economic fallout sets in, there's one thing you need to be prepared for, for many of you, your paycheck will go down in the new year. here's why. the payroll tax was cut by two percentage points over the last two years to give the economy a little nudge. experts say that tax holiday is coming to an end and the small tax break adds up big over the course of a year. the center on budget and policy priorities says it's about $100 billion that will come out of our paychecks and go to the tax man. goldman sachs says that ending the tax holiday would shave 0.6 percentage points off economic growth next year which is not predicted to be all that strong anyway and here's the impact on you. let's say you make $50,000 a year, that's an extra $20 out of every single paycheck every week. doesn't seem like a lot of money but when you do the math, it sure adds up. that's $1000 you won't be taking home in 2013. jessica doy
to bring in cnn chief white house correspondent, jessica yelen, we all know they would rather celebrate new year's eve elsewhere. how did they get here? >> reporter: it is such a good question, you know, candy, this grid lock in washington creates the eye-rolling. but the fundamental question goes to the essential differences between the two parties about the role of government, should it be bigger or smaller? about whether we want lower taxes or more of a social safety net. so while we have seen the principles, the president, speaker boehner, and now senator mcconnell and reid trying to get involved in stages in the last few weeks, it has always broken down because they fundamentally disagree about the big ideas over the core of this debate. they're fighting between the two parties. and this could get resolved in a matter of days or weeks. but the big difference, the issues could really take months to work out. >> can it be resolved in the matter of few enough days that they meet that january 31st deadline? >> reporter: anything is possible. i always think of congress like getting the term

, had to be in washington in time to deal with the looming fiscal cliff just five days away. jessica yellen waiting for him at the white house. great to see you. what can the president do at this point, i guess, is the big question. and are aids still hopeful for a deal before january 1st? >> taking your second question first, hopefully, yes. confident, i would say that's going too far. at the white house they are frowning about what they consider recalls trance on willing to compromise. what can the president do, he can con joel all sides closer to some sort of agreement. from the democrats perspective what they think needs to be done is to get senate leader mcconnell to agree not to filibuster any action in the senate and then get speaker boehner to agree to put a bill forward on the house floor for a vote. if those two pieces happen, then they feel like there could be something done before new year's. so it's sort of con joeling mitch mcconnell to agree to those actions on those parts. if the president can get that done, we don't have much time left for the rest of the pieces to f
chief white house correspondent jessica yellin will be watching. what can we really expect to come out of this meeting this afternoon? >> well, alina, we're not sure what really will come out of it. the ideal scenario would be if all sides agree to a scaled-down version of the fiscal cliff agreement that the president and spe speaker boehner had been discussing weeks ago and then senator mcconnell would agree that no republicans would block it in any way if he can promise that. he argues that he can't really make that promise but if e he could then speaker boehner would promise to bring it to a vote on the floor. all sides would shake hands and we'd have a deal before new year's. that seems highly unlikely. but that's what all sides are pushing for today. >> i think we can all agree that tax rates are the biggest sticking point. so what specific issues are your sources saying that they might actually address in this meeting today besides tax rates? could they talk about unemployment benefits, spending cuts, what's expected to come up today? >> this is the -- the specific details of the

turn to jessica yellin, a chief white house correspondent. jessica, we said up front, it is a long shot, give us a best case scenario. >> reporter: the best case scenario would be that all the leaders walk out of this meeting and say they have a deal. the two senators say they can bring it to a vote, and none of their members will filibuster it. house speaker john boehner says he will bring it to the house floor for a vote before new year's eve and house minority leader nancy pelosi says she can wrangle all the democratic votes it needs to pass because you would expect a lot of house republicans to vote no, so you need almost all the house democrats to vote yes. if that sounds almost too good to be true, it probably is. >> and then they sing kumbaya. never, ever going to happen. and if it does -- >> reporter: they braid each other's hair. >> you got it. we're more likely to see that. so tell us about the role in this meeting of senator mitch mcconnell. why is he a key role to this? >> reporter: this has been moved over to the senate. and the house has said it has to get through there be

will take effect in days. jessica yellin has the latest. >> reporter: in washington, there is still hope a deal can be cut in time to avert the fiscal cliff. on saturday the president was at work here at the white house, but all eyes were up on the senate where negotiators were trading deal points and revenue figures, to try to reach an agreement all sides can stomach. the base line for the president - any bipartisan bill would have to extend unemployment insurance benefits that would affect some two million americans. and it would have to increase taxes on the highest income earners. but negotiators could still work out exactly where those tax increases would hit and whether they would halt an increase in the estate tax. now in case that deal breaks down, the president has asked democratic leader harry reid to prepare a separate bill to put on the senate floor. that bill would increase taxes for households that earn 250- thousand dollars or more. now that's a democratic proposal, and you can expect republicans would block it. so rather than thinking of that as a stop-gap measure, think
